Friends:

And what are our ancestors praying for us this Lenten Season?

Lenten Forum Series – “The Sabbath”:  Join us for reflections and exercises on how to live from the essential nutrients of rest, wisdom and delight.  We meet in the Youth Room at 11:30.

The Youth Group meets this Sunday, February 21 from 6 – 7:30 pm at Thai and Greg’s home.

Book of Blessings – Lenten Discipline:  During the Lenten Season keep a journal by your bed and each night record 2 or 3 blessings that you experienced during the day.  In time you will enjoy a priceless spiritual gift!

Our thanks to Pr. Margareta and the Sunday School Staff for our Valentine Family Service!  The next Family Service is on March 6.

 How wonderful to celebrate Tom and Joan Eychner’s 55th Wedding Anniversary!  A joyous kiss and a perfectly arched champagne cork!

Early Communion Class:  Parents of 2nd – 5th Graders – please let Pr. Steve know of your questions and availability for this class.

Keep in your prayers:  Fred Garrity, Ralph, Pr. Bob Lesher, the Peace Council, Richard Caemmerer and family, all the refugees, and those seeking employment.

Men’s Group:  The Men of Peace will enjoy Breakfast together on Saturday, March 5 from 9 – 10:45 am at Peace.  An occasion to relax, reflect and get further connected.

By waiting and by calm you shall be saved, in quiet and trust your strength lies. —Isaiah 30: 15

Lenten blessings,  Pr. Steve
